My parents live under three hours from us. But they are across the mountains and with having a pretty hash winter and with my husbands inconsistent work schedule it has been hard to make it over.
But we finally did last weekend!
It was a last minute decision and when the boys found me packing for our trip they were elated!
Away Travel supplies us with a fabulous suitcase for the boys’ things and will be used for my upcoming travels!
SoCozy had us covered for their hair.
Tenth and Pine has the best selections of children’s goods. The boys look great win their tops!
Eastern WA will always have a special place in my heart.
They might have a lot of snow and low temps in the winter but the one thing I miss (outside of my family obviously and our home) is that they almost always have clear blue skies.
No matter the weather. We have now been in Western WA for almost five years and I really have come to realize I definitely get the winter blues here.
So it makes our trips over to my parents property even more special. The boys have plenty of land to roam around and discover new things.
And they are fully obsessed with they Aunt and Uncle. To see my siblings with them truly just warms my heart. And it reminds me even more the importance of not letting our ‘busy’ life get in the way of what is important. FAMILY is everything.
I also treasure the relationship my parents have with my kids. They love them deeply.
Involve them in ‘chores’ they make the time for them and that’s really special for me.
